	kmod, the new module loader (replaces kerneld)

	Reorganized not to be a daemon by Adam Richter, with guidance

	Modified to avoid chroot and file sharing problems.
	Mikael Pettersson

	Limit the concurrent number of kmod modprobes to catch loops from

	Unblock all signals when we exec a usermode process.
